VIENTIANE — The first bridge span of the China-Laos railway has been built over the Mekong River in northern Laos, the Laos-China Railway Co Ltd, which is in charge of the construction and operation of the railway said on May 21.

Accordingly, the China Railway No. 8 Engineering Group (CREC-8) has completed the closure of the first span of the Luang Prabang cross-Mekong River railway bridge on May 18. It is also the first completed bridge span of two cross-Mekong bridges of the railway.

The 1,458.9-meter Luang Prabang cross-Mekong bridge, some 220 km north of Lao capital Vientiane, is a key project of the China-Laos railway. Despite high risks and difficulties of the bridge construction, five main piers of the bridge have been planted in the Mekong River.

The China-Laos railway crosses the Mekong River twice, with Luang Prabang and Ban Ladhan bridges under construction by the Chinese engineering company CREC-8.

The 414-km railway links Mohan-Boten border gate in northern Laos and the capital of Vientiane with 60 percent of its construction being bridges and tunnels.

The China-Laos railway is being promoted by the leaders of the two countries as a project of interconnectivity. The building of tunnels, bridges, roadbeds and other sections has progressed smoothly since December 2016.

The operating speed of trains on the route is designed to be 160 km per hour. The railway is expected to be fully operational in December 2021.
